generally agree on three things about iran's nuclear program. first, tehran does not have a nuclear bomb. second, iran has not decided to build nuclear bomb. and, third, probably years away, iran is years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead if decide to develop a nuclear bomb. nevertheless, they believe that iran intends at least to acquire the capability to build nuclear weapon, the capability. that's the question. in a relatively short time, should it deem them necessary. and as a result, they do not trust iran will confine its nuclear activities to nonmilitary purposes. this is the question. in reality iran's nuclear program is a subsidiary issue of iran/west relations. specifically, iran/u.s. relations. while iran/u.s. relations also is a subsidiary issue of iran/israel issues, conflict between iran and israel. since countries like india, pakistan and israel enjoy strategic relations with the u.s. and the west even though they are not member of non-proliferation treaty and possess massive arsenal of nuclear weapons. where is the problem? and what can be done? on the nuclea

not fear consequences for their actions. as long as that belief holds true in tehran they will continue to support terrorists and build a nuclear weapons program. >> greta: a u.s. senator once said to me while i was lamenting there were so many problems across the world, he said to me we can't solve the problems, we can only manage them. that should be our goal in light of the fact so many variables. are we managing these different hot spots around the world and give him a good grade at managing them? >> no. i don't agree with the premise we can't solve problems. that is very european view of the world. i think americans are problem solving people. i think that is what we try to do. recognizing we can't do everything, the last approach is throw up our hands and say we have to manage the confusion. president's biggest problem is he doesn't pay enough attention to national security. it doesn't interest him. this distinguishes him from the long line of presidents going back on bipartisan basis going back to franklin roosevelt. he doesn't wake up in the morning what threats does the united
